1. How long will I be able to register? Will you be closing registration?
As with all my classes, once I open the registration, I don't close it. That means, if you can't jump in right in the beginning, you can sign up any time after that. Anytime.
2. How long will the class be available?
My classes have no end date. This means the class material and videos will be there for you to visit and watch when it is convenient to you. If you have a conflict after signing up and can't get back for three months, it will all still be there.
3. When can we get the supply list?
I'm hoping that I will be able to send out the classroom invitations today. The supply list is one thing that is holding me up mainly because it is so short. I know. Makes no sense.
4. Will we be able to download the videos?
For now, I don't plan to make download available. But you will have access to them for an indefinite time period in the classroom.
5. Do you plan to offer a DVD of the class?
At the moment, no. But I'm still on the fence with that and so as they say, never say never.
This is such a great question. And yes, I do consider all my classes interactive. And I feel like the interaction is so convenient because it is all within the classroom.
One thing I do that I think is a little different in my classes is the Gallery(forum) that is within the group/class. I encourage the students to share there finished pieces as well as "in progress" pieces. Then I give them a gentle critique or answer questions they might have. I try to do this early in the morning and easily spend as much as 30 minutes on each critique. When I say gentle, I mean constructive in a teaching way. Then the other students are there to give support and encouragement. I also have my forums and comment walls set so you can get an email with the full text and don't have to POP over to the site if you don't want to. I encourage students to "follow" all the class forums because there is a lot of information shared through interaction. The class is very organic in that way because a lot of knowledge is shared through interaction as the class progresses.
So if you have a question that I missed. Please do ask. I will answer them in the comments. But if you want to email me at sktomlinson at g mail dot com.
Thank you for the great response to this course. I promise it will not disappoint.
